I was talking to a colleague at work about dating. I realized that I carry a lot “baggage” due to having CF and also having lost my sister. This is a weird feeling – I’m open about it because I think it’s important to be, but I don’t want people to feel like they have to feel sorry for me for all of this.
Do you feel like you carry a lot of “baggage?” How do you go about handling that?
Are you open about your struggles? Why or why not?
